"Did you ever suffer an attack of a wandering foot caused by the lure of that mystic unknown? There's is no permanent cure, relief only had
while making the wilds your home."
The weather is getting hot--and muggy--its the time of year that I become a grumpy camper!! Nothing a good tromp in nature and a cool shower cant cure tho...so out I went to clear up the cobwebs, break a sweat, and to get my mind off current crapiolla'
Speaking of choking somebody ('er was I?) check this out...
This is a wisteria vine, it looks like an anaconda, doesn't it--Putting a choke hold on this pine, the funny thing is the pine doesnt look to be that old--there are pines in my yard that are 40-50 yrs old and they are way bigger than this one...
... this female house sparrow is squinting against the bright light...lol I love how birds are so "honest" and unpretencious--there is nothing sneaky about them, they dont need lawyers to tell them what to do...
The local vet has 3 sets of martin homes - this is such a cool structure and Im not the only one who thinks so--
The purple martins are raising their young in these gourds and the house sparrows are taking advantage of it too...they seem to be getting along just fine, they co-exist in harmony--I know the HS's are introduced and all but what can you do at this point-- my genalogy research tells me that I was introduced to NA--------lol
I scared this Great Blue Heron when I went to the park last week for a walk about--he wanted NO part of me--he very honestly moved to the other side of the pond upon my arrival...he didnt act coy, nor was he polite, he in no certain terms let me know he was NOT happy to see me--
Goodale pond was looking pretty good that day--some clouds hung around, the sun was in and out--
gave a weird cast to the flower of the lily pads...
..and once again the eastern Kingbird was out hunting, notice that tail how he has it tilted upward and his wings pointing down--he is conversing with a second bird that was hunting nearby--Im not sure what the sign language means but it was def some kind of message!
I think they were hunting together? Hope they're not planning a wedding--big mistake!! Maybe a young one learning the ropes?..
I'm having dinner with a friend tonight we said we need a good biotch session-- I told her IM NOT dressing up she said OMG do people still do that?? We sure don't --I always dress like I'm getting ready to paint the house, or go beg for money on the corner...lol
Hope life in your neck of the woods is treatin' you right and if not hope you can git' it straight soon--
